Most of us who have already completed or started LTO conversations have probably created our individual build threads. It was suggested to not clutter those build threads with too much unrelated material, so this should help along those lines.
Looking forward to following your progress Peter. Of the half dozen or so conversions to date I don’t believe anybody has fully used your IMA/OBDIIC&C to make a PEHV.
I have a Lean Burn CVT with a bumblebee and your OBDII/IMAC&C. I also have 96 LTO cells waiting for install.
Question for you in regards to the battery capacity and range. With a 84 cell set up charged to 220 volts how long would you estimate a constant 15-20 amp assist would be available?
15 amps of assist will bump my FCD from 75 to 100 mpg at 60 mph. With my bumblebee I’m only able to hold this for about 5 minutes before the battery is depleted.
I’m averaging 70 mpg for my 90 mile commute. Is it realistic to think LTO could bump me to 90+ mpg?
Best of luck with customs, looking g forward to your progress updates and seeing what you can do with these cells.
